Camera Obscura

Camera Obscura formed in Glasgow in 1996, releasing a slew of singles leading up to their debut CD Biggest Bluest Hi-Fi (2001, UK). The band slowly built up a loyal following in their native land, including the likes of legendary BBC DJ John Peel, who championed the band early on. Merge Records released Camera Obscura’s US debut, Underachievers Please Try Harder, in 2004, beginning a love affair between the US and the band that continues to this day. Fans across North America quickly became hooked on Camera Obscura’s lovely, enchanting melodies and undeniable hooks.
